First, let me say that I feel bad for the girl. It's got to suck having that serious of an allergy. That being said, how does she and others like her cope with such a life-threatening allergy in everyday life? Is someone going ahead of her to check every classroom, store and office for nuts? I understand that an airplane poses the problem of not being able to rush off to the ER at the first sign of trouble, but surely an airplane isn't the first place the girl has gone to that couldn't be made completely nut-free. It makes me wonder what the family's preventative measures are and why they couldn't be used on an airplane. And desamo, thank you so much for your enlightening posts on how you handle your allergies. It doesn't sound like an easy routine to maintain, but I appreciate how you've manage to adapt without expecting every person around you to hide the gluten.
